Llys yr Afon is a really lovely apartment. Plenty of space, immaculately clean, with a hot tub and beautiful garden. It was easy to relax. We were only a short walk into Aberaeron, so it was perfect for enjoying all the entertainment on offer! Aberaeron is a lovely town with lots of pubs, shops and restaurants to enjoy. The atmosphere at the Harbourmaster is always great, and we had a lovely meal at the Cellar. Also New Quay is only a short drive away and has great dolphin watching tripsCouple from North Wales - 7th July 2015
